Dumitrescu accepts Akratitos post

Romanian Ilie Dumitrescu has been appointed as head coach of newly promoted Alpha Ethniki side Akratitos FC.
Former Romanian international Ilie Dumitrescu has been appointed coach of newly promoted Alpha Ethniki side Akratitos FC.

One-year deal
The 36-year-old, who has signed a one-year contract with the option of a further season, has already had two short spells in charge of Greek top-flight teams. He guided Egaleo FC to sixth position in the second half of the 2004/05 campaign, having previously taken the helm of AEK Athens FC between January and June 2004.

Much-travelled career
A star of the 1994 FIFA World Cup, Dumitrescu hung up his boots almost five years ago, and after a brief stint as an agent, began his coaching career in January 2001 with FC Otelul Galati. He coached another Romanian side FC Brasov during the 2001/02 season, before joining Cyprus's Alki Larnaca FC where he would resign after saving the club from relegation.

National service
Dumitrescu then took the reins of Romania's Under-21 team as well as FCM Bacau before returning to Cyprus with Apollon Limassol FC ahead of his exploits in Greece.
